Springfield Elections: Rodley: ‘My commitment ... has not wavered’
When I started this campaign for Springfield City Council in June 2019, the world looked very different. My belief that Springfield needed to focus on affordable housing, improving infrastructure, attracting and retaining living wage jobs, and livable neighborhoods and strong communities compelled me to step up to serve in whatever ways I could. As the only candidate until early 2020, I appreciated the opportunity to knock on hundreds of doors and talk to so many of my neighbors and to connect, discuss and share around our shared hopes and dreams. With the onset of the pandemic, the painful recession, racial tensions, the resignation of the mayor, and much more, my commitment to face our challenges head on has not wavered.
